Fall Editorial Internship
The Express is seeking several interns for Fall 2016. Interns will be responsible for a broad range of newsroom tasks — including blogging, reporting, photography, database management, research, and various other projects — to be assigned based on experience and interest. Each intern will work closely with an editor whose interests best align with theirs, whether that be music criticism, arts reporting, investigative news reporting, social media, or photography. Those who show initiative are welcome to pitch and write stories for our news, culture, features, and music sections. Many of our past participants have finished the internship having produced cover stories, though the program is designed to appeal to people with a broad range of writing interests and experience levels. To that end, interns will work closely with our editors to come up with a personalized set of duties intended to develop their writing, reporting, and organizational skills.
Prior journalism experience and familiarity with the East Bay are strongly preferred but not required. The internship is unpaid; interns must be able to receive school credit and be available for at least ten hours a week. The deadline for the Fall internship is August 22, 2016. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, so please don't hesitate to apply early. Please send a resume, cover letter, and three writing samples to Sarah.Burke@EastBayExpress.com with the subject line "internship" and an indication of whether youre most interested in being a music, arts & culture, news, social media, or photography intern.
